When the walls come down

she's walking around the room
but her eyes are on you
watching your every hesitant move
as you inch closer, she's running towards you

you realise there's nothing left
that could come in the way of this
nothing to stop this burning train
that's hurtling towards a death drop

she whispers your name
and it's everything you've wanted
you say you'll love her 'til the end
forgetting that you're only dreaming

and it's only a matter of time
before you realise that she's gone
just another wisp of smoke
that filled up your diseased lungs

never real, never yours
and the only thing that's left
that's there to keep you company
is guilt, shame and misery
